What to look for in area rugs for your remodel

Area rugs are often overlooked during remodeling, and you could be missing the best part of this process, especially in certain areas. They can add style, comfort, and warmth to any room, but they also come in various colors, shapes, sizes, and materials to serve your needs perfectly. So, if you're looking for the perfect addition to your upcoming project, here are some area rug facts that could change your results.

Choose your perfect area rugs

The first step is to think about the function of the room where the area rugs will be placed. High-traffic spaces require a more durable product that's easy to clean and stands up well to the constant wear and damage potential. In addition, some fibers are much more likely to stand up to repeated spot cleaning and vacuuming, and they'll serve you better if you're a parent or pet owner. Next, consider the shape and size of the rug, which should be proportional to the room into which it's placed and the furniture alongside it. A general rule is to leave 18 inches of bare floor around the perimeter of the area rugs. Again, the shape should complement the room, with rectangle rugs paired with rectangle dining tables and round rugs paired with round coffee tables. Finally, choose a color and pattern that matches or contrasts each space's existing color scheme and style. You can use the piece as a focal point or as background support, depending on the décor needs in the area, for results that keep you stylish and functional. Area rugs can also create mood and ambiance, using color to your advantage. We also offer custom rugs so you can get the ideal look for your remodel.
